  1. Multi-page documents

    It needs to support multi-page documents. I wouldn't even mind it as a swipe option in addition to document and whiteboard. Maybe swipe up, with document selected, and it changes between single page docs and multi-page docs?

              • Multiple Business Cards & Intelligent Handling

                1. Ability to Scan multiple business cards at once
                2. Ability to export to Address Book within the phone or OneNote (into a specific 'default' Contacts section as selected by the user.
                3. Intelligent Title with Contact Name and Company (not the default Lens title with date)

                Use Case: Dont want to save all random contacts into my address book. You meet 100s of contacts at say a networking event. You want to be able to quickly scan their cards and store them somewhere (like Onenote) and later on as need be, add the selected ones to Address Book.

                • rename

                  LET US RENAME PDF FILES BEFORE SAVING!!!!!!!!

                  Android already has this function, I've been naming my scanned PDF files according to the content within them for easy searching, when in-document search isn't enough to catch the keywords.

                  I thought iOS apps were supposed to be better! This is such a basic functionality and this makes me want to move back to Android.
